2:41 am
like so. onto the cutting board. and make cuts against the grain, the most juicy tender type of cut, ordering sticks a half an inch the according to your preference, preserve the juices from the roasted turkey, for that over-the-top and continue a quarter inch thick and get the skin on their. and to that all the way through the turkey, just like so. i pour that over and continue to do the same layering for the bird. another great turkey tip is i

>> welcome back. more people than ever before voted in the 2020 presidential election but now just a few weeks from election day record numbers of americans distrust the results. fox news contributor joe consciousa joins me to discuss. is that for the cowboy game? >> it is on fox, not this fox but the other fox.
2:47 am
the washington football team taking on the cowboys, pregame at 4:00. >> they play every thanksgiving. >> wouldn't have known that independently but you are wearing a cowboys jersey. i was going to yell at her for being wrong, you are wearing a cowboys jersey. we have got to get to the topic at hand. a cnbc poll shows only 3% of trump supporters think joe biden won the election. there appears to be a lot of distrust and anger out there. >> i looked at that number and said why? why do only 3% of one side believe joe biden is legitimate? because we didn't have election day, we had election week and that only fueled suspicion
2:48 am
because it took so long for the results to come in and remember what happened. election night when you went to bed trump was a big in pennsylvania, michigan, wisconsin, georgia and over the next four five days you see the lead slowly evaporate, slowly go away and then joe biden is declared the winner and when you do that that build suspicion so a couple ideas in that column you brought up, very simple. make election day holiday, expand the hours you can vote, start at 6 am, end at 12:30 or 10:00 pm in case you have to work that, pay people to be had voting stations when you have to expand those as well. lines going on for 5 or 6 blocks to vote, give more people a chance to vote but if they do vote they have to have id. and my preference, you have to
2:49 am
have a id, that is the solution here so we avoid that and finally with the mail in ballots, michigan, wisconsin and pennsylvania, no states for whatever reason don't start counting them until after election day, so we don't get those results until days later, florida, ohio had a right, count ballots as they come in so that 7, 8, 12 hours after polls close we have a winner and the suspicion goes away. >> a lot of americans will be sitting around the dinner table and politics will likely come up for a lot of families. how to keep things from getting awkward. >> no politics while eating. you are not going to change anybody's mind but the crazy aunt and uncle, it is a bad that could happen. any political conversation
2:50 am
happening after dinner, and any conversation into the backyard, in these situations, it would be the way to go. there is the bad breath factor from the cranberry sauce. if we do those things we will be in good shape but i got to go. don't know who is up at this hour. >> what i am thankful for this thanksgiving, there is a lead over the nfc east. >> with three whens. >> so many interceptions. happy thanksgiving.

2:55 am
obama condemns hispanics for voting for donald trump. david webb is calling him out. he joins us now. david, how can he say that when the practice of putting undocumented immigrants in cages started while he was president? >> the answered the question in the question. we'll get to barack obama and call him thought a moment. how dare you let joe concha on tv on happy thanksgiving day wearing a cow girl shirt? i don't know, there are problems there concha, i will be calling you afterwards. carley: make this whole thing stop. jillian: go ahead. >> let's get to barack obama now. the former president is a slick political liar. the answer is in what you said. yes, these enclosures were built during his administration and he doesn't want to take credit for them. he wants to use it to deflect. what's really happened here is that blacks and hispanics voted for republicans not just
2:56 am
president trump but for republican candidates across the country and that change concerns them. hispanics have the fastest growing birth rate in the united states. they are already trying to capture the hispanic vote on the left. now that vote shifted because they saw the realities of what many of them have seen their families and friends escape when they went to socialism and communism in central and south america. it's not quote just the allegations of racism against the president. barack obama needs to bring everybody back into the fold so they can continue to be wards of the progressive state. jillian: let me ask you this, david. the president made inroads with the minority vote. how do republicans continue to do that now over the course of the next few years? >> look, president trump did something the republican party needed. he gave a swift kick to the door and said come on in here. what did he say what the you
2:57 am
know what do you have to lose? because policies and success matter. we saw wages increase. we saw unemployment at record lows. republicans need to continue that. they need to continue that at the state level as well, republican governors and state legislatures need to make sure that policies are in place, not failed promises by people like core booker or barack obama. safe community, stop the defund the police. as a matter of fact, fight to make sure that the police have the proper training, the proper relationship, real community policing not broken communities that are seeing murder rates and robbery rates increase. that will make it better. and if republicans foster those policies and push them, then americans, not just blacks, will reward them with their votes. jillian: you know, meantime during this same breakfast club interview the former president was asked about his relationship

with reverend jeremy wright. now i want to play some of the things that the reverend has said over the years. and then we will hear how obama feels about him. take a listen. >> not god bless america. god [bleep] america. that's in the bible. >> now we are indignant because of stuff we have done overseas and now brought right back into our own front yard. >> reverend wright is an example of somebody who supremely gifted preacher. carley: the former president some of the reverend's comments have been taken out of context. what's your reaction? >> i watched the entire videos as many of you have since probably 2008 when it became a repox on the public consciousness. again, jeremiah wright in that clip, part of what you just played is deflecting for islamists who attacked and killed thousands of americans.
2:59 am
continue to kill thousands of people, including other muslims around the world. and this is who barack obama admires? this is where he got his political capital? this is where he got his chicago start? look, this is where we are right now in america. we have cultural fight between the truth, reality. they are trying to erase and rewrite history. right now at a time when we have a contentious election, we have two people who are at the top, the votes are being counted, of the challenges are being played. we don't have a president-elect yet, when it's certified and all in we will have a determination for the american people. once that's played out, where will barack obama and joe biden need us next? because joe biden needs barack obama and barack obama needs the relevance to get back into the political game. jillian: okay. david webb. thank you for joining us on this thanksgiving. don't forget you can watch reality check with david webb only on fox nation. we hope you have a good
